SEVEN DEADLY SINS
A series of interviews based on the Seven Deadly Sins from Gig Gossip.
We asked Hollywood Actor Victoria Summer what her answers to these sins would be…
LUST: Who or what do you find yourself lusting after currently, and why?
My current lust which has been a whirlwind these last few months has to be my fiancé. I had been single in LA for nine years and never met anyone even close to how amazing he is! I knew pretty much straight away when we met that we would be together and he is the lust of my life. Now and forever..
GREED: What should you be cutting down on, and why?
Hours on my phone and particularly on social media. During this whole lockdown period, I have successfully cut out watching the news. TV for me is movies or TV shows. Life is better without any news programmes whatsoever- I’m happier. However, my hours on social media have increased and I could do with cutting down and picking up a good book – you know like the good old days!
GLUTTONY: What one thing could you happily consume limitless amounts of, and why?
Tea. It’s my favourite drink which is why I created a whole event around the subject (Tea with Victoria Summer) because there is just so much to explore and discover! Apart from all the different types, flavours and regions, traditional tea etiquette is also particularly interesting. How do you take yours?
SLOTH: Stop being so lazy! What is the thing you should be putting more effort in to at the moment, and why?
Shopping! I’ve become lazy. In the US I discovered a rental service where you can have a continual alternating wardrobe. It’s so fantastically simple, I now just love choosing on the app, having clothes delivered to my door, wearing them a bit and sending them back for something new. It’s far more environmentally friendly – very important to me and I just have zero desire to go to the shops and conventionally try and buy. Lazy? Or smart?
WRATH: Who or what grinds your gears, and why?
Paedophilia. The word itself disgusts me and it is all too common and all too hidden in this world, particularly in my business. Child trafficking is the biggest crime against humanity of our times. It literally makes my blood boil.
ENVY: Who are you jealous of, and why?
Zendaya. I’ve worked so hard for my career and she has not even hit her mid twenties and she’s done so many roles I’d love to play and her red carpet style is so on point, every time – effortless style and beauty.
PRIDE: Answers on a boast card! What is your proudest achievement?
My proudest achievement is meeting my fiancé and getting engaged. I had begun to think there was no one in the world for me and I was going to have to settle it face life alone. He is my biggest and best dream come true.
